," and tucker carlson. steve? >> the problem is if they came down the website until it's right, that's likely to be six months and long beyond that. then you get into the problems we discussed before. you have the sickest people signing up. you have other people incapable of signing up. do you penalize them? do you not? it creates, i think, and exacerbates a set of problems the white house doesn't want to deal with. if the white house doesn't make this decision now, they get themselves further into trouble and make the ultimate decision that much more difficult. i think these are the kinds of things being debated behind closed doors at the white house and elsewhere with ceos of insurance companies and others. we've got to make a decision. what do we do and when do we make this decision? every day that passes, i think they can make their problems that much more difficult. >> they are trying to lower expectations, clearly, julie. dan pfeiffer this weekend on abc. >> our goal is to get as many people done as possible. i can promise the first enrollment numbers released later this month won't be
't sign up. >> steve, what's the political response here? particularly from the democrats, and the senate? are we seeing them begin to get nervous about this, and any breaks with the administration? >> welt, you know, we are, paul, at least in congress, not in the administration, and that's because, you know, i think the website problems have been almost a distraction to the real problem here, which is this is trying to sell the american people on the edsel. they're looking at the product now. they're finding that their losing what they want, the insurance they want, and being forced into something that for millions of americans will be more expensive. what you're seeing now is a lot of what we call the red state democrats who are getting very nervous about what the political impact of this will be. you know, there's some people who think even on tuesday's elections, in some of the states, it might be an issue, because people are just hopping angry about the product that is being forced upon them. >> do you think in the end -- i mean the real danger here for the administration in implemen
you are saying. >> and it wasn't steve rattner, we talked about this. it wasn't just this one ad. they went to ohio for a year and said mitt romney was a disgusting, filthy capitalist pig. it was on bain capital. they were clear. they told john heilemann, we have to destroy mitt romney. they went to ohio and they destroyed him as human being saying he was a horrible, filthy capitalist and yesterday, barack obama is going to massachusetts saying he's a role model. which is it? >> the other thing they did during the campaign is said mitt romney was responsible, attacking the health plan he put in place and accused him of being a hypocrite about that. i think the fact is, the massachusetts plan is a plan that worked. it is a model for our plan. we can talk about it later today. so, the president is latching himself on to that plan. i guess you are not happy he's doing that. >> no, he can. either mitt romney is a horrible human being or a role model for america, which is it? >> the health plan is a role model. >> there's really no answer. >> what is more embarrassing to you, how it r
panel, steve hays, kristen powers, syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. charles, what about this? >> this is remarkable. i think this is the first of the blows that will come after the scandal about the website. this is sort of the substance of it. it isn't just that it is a total contradiction of a promise that obama made over and over again. it goes especially the carney explanation as to why it's going to happen, it is the essence of what's wrong with obama care. it is that we know what's best. you have a plan, you like the plan, you want the plan. but we call it substandard because some expert in washington had written a regulation in which it doesn't meet or fit. and we're going to cancel it on you. i mean, it's almost a parody of the definition of a liberal, which is somebody who doesn't care what you do as long as it's mandatory. and it's the essence of obama care. it's the essence of the whole liberal ideology obama is imposing on the country. we know what's best. for example, we know we got to have a green economy. oils and fuels are the past he says, versus the fuel of
from new york. i'm chris hayes. and i'm dressed this halloween as steve kornacki. we've got lots of politics tonight, starting at the white house, where you might have noticed, it's been something of a rough couple of weeks for the president. with the rocky rollout of his signature health reform law dominating the news, the political toll is real and it is getting worse. and nowhere is the damage more apparent than in the latest polling from nbc news, where president obama's approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 42%. that is a five-point drop from just earlier this month. these numbers, as bad as they are, don't necessarily exist in a vacuum. there's a lot more complexity to the current political environment, which in many ways is the story of american politics in the tea party era. >> let's talk about the president. >> between syria, between the shutdown, between obama care, how are his approval numbers stacking up? >> record lows. >> the president's approval rating dropped five points. >> at an all-time low. >> is this more than just the second-term curse? >> if he g
reinstitute that in the united states is nuts, but that's just my view. i want to bring in steve conover. you've got pretty impressive numbers here, and 129 million people according to your plans, according to your calculations. 129 million people either lose their insurance or have to get much higher premium insurance. is that true? how'd you get there? >> well, that is true. spinners like david axelrod have been claiming that this problem will only affect 5% of americans. the people that are getting nongroup coverage. that's not true. that's absolutely false. this problem of losing coverage is going to affect employer -- people with employer-based plans as well. now, out of that 129 million, only 18 to 50 million actually will lose their plan and have to start from scratch. but the rest will be ending up buying more expensive coverage because they have to pay for it. >> those are big numbers, chris. the top of the ranges are huge potential numbers. and then your second point, which is coming out this memo that nbc got, the obama administration now realizes premium increases may be just as d
a tiny american drug company found the solution to the scourge of the meth epidemic. and steve hartman on the road. prisoners who met suellen fried leave prison with a new conviction. >> maybe we're not that bad
, steve, was the fact that we had merged the non-group market with the individual market to try to spread out risks. what does the federal plan do? well, it reduces the number of rating factors we can use to evaluate risk for that pool. it's undermine wack we want to do. in fact, we have pleaded with our governor, governor patrick has asked the federal government, give us a waiver so that we can evaluate and price risk fairly and yet we now are going to be forced to use 4 rating factors as opposed to 106789 that's one of the major points of distinction here, massachusetts plan worked because it was designed for pennsylvania. we had expertise, for instance, in pricing risks. we had growth markets in medical devices. yet, when we look at what's happening at the federal level which claims to be mirrored on what we did in massachusetts, it's impeding our ability to carry out the plan we set out that has worked so successfully. >> i know governor patrick has a different version. congressman holt wants to ask you a question. >> senator, thanks for taking time away from the ducks this morning to
. >> steve. >> i thought it was lee harvey oswald. why do you say it was his own vice president? >> johnson had unique motives, means and opportunity. he was a man facing being dumped from the ticket and federal prosecution -- >> wait a minute. what do you mean he was going to be dumped? >> he had become a political liability by bobby kennedy's justice department in a wheeler dealer scandal and the bobby baker scandal. he was not only looking at political ruin, he was looking at prison and he was a very desperate man. >> okay. what did he do? >> i think there's three pieces of evidence that tie johnson to this crime. first of all, murder was in his repertoire. in my book i tie him to eight political murders prior to kennedy to cover up theft through fraud of the 1948 senate election and to cover up his financial wheeling dealings with billy solastas. murder was in his repertoire. he had a hit man named malcolm wallace. his finger prints were found on the sniper -- >> on the records. >> the dallas police find a finger print from malcolm wallace, a johnson retainer on the card booed box in th
freeman and steve moore. let's go to colorado first. it's a very interesting state, trending left politically with a kind of new coalition of cultural liberals and hispanics. and women. leading to a democratic majority there. and they could take another big step to the left with this ballot initiative. explain. >> no question about it. you're exactly right. colorado is one of those states that has moved more to the left than just about any other state in the country. partially because of huge democratic liberal money that's gone into that state. what they've now put on the ballot is a ji gaigantic income tax increase to pay for more money for schools. big power play on the left to expand the size of the state government. the income tax, if raised would get rid of a traditional policy of a low flat tax. i would make the case one of the reasons colorado has been a high growth state is because they've had a very, you know, sound economic -- that's in jeopardy now. >> the flat tax. all income levels. if this passes, it would move up to 5% for certain taxpayers and 5.9% i think it is f
for the call. steve is joining us from west palm beach, florida. caller: good morning. good morning. i cannot the two terribly illustrative ash cannot be too terribly illustrative, i have been -- i cannot be too terribly illustrative. a lot ofen doing a studying of the united states economy going back to revolutionary times. there were a lot of periods where the economy was very volatile. you were so many booms and busts in the 19th century and so on. the last 25 years, from 1890 to from was very sehgal -- 1990 22 thousand seven, was very stable. 1990 to 2007 was very stable. if you never owned a house you might go from a time when you live alone in a single apartment to where you have to have a roommate back to where you can afford a single apartment and back and forth depending on what is.economy if people lose that resiliency they feel there is no opportunities to get ahead. that is basically what i want to say. journal.comnational -- but he railed along the way -- schedule got derailed on long the way. the senate would tackle a number of nominations. the employee nondiscrimination act and
a floor and a work schedule with our good friends from "up with steve kornacki," which as many of you know airs right before this show. now, during the last few weeks, i have seen many contestants come and go, rise and fall, all while testing their smarts in steve's popular political game show "up against the clock." now, the brilliant minds that have graced the podium range from congressman rush holt to "the washington post's" jonathan capehart. you get a little bit of intellectual credibility from one of the smartest people around, steve kornacki. so i was honored when steve invited me to be a contestant on the show next saturday. here's the thing. my team and me, we consider ourselves nerds. while the folks over at "up," we call them wonks. now, nerds handle the analytic part of information. tell us what happens, and we'll tell you what it means. but wonks, they just know everything. so in order to make all of my melissa harris-perry viewers proud, i have spent the last week in serious training. i'm ready, coach. ♪ lbj was president in 1964. oh! >> all right, kid. give me 25 reps. >>
of that squeamish patriotism for senator cruz. the texas senator was out there pheasant hunting with steve king raising the question of who to root for, the pheasants or the wacko birds? well, this hunting season for votes, who could forget mitt romney's focus on small varmints, not to mention the other prestal candidates who have had to display their guns, suggesting that the senator from alamo country may be ready to run himself for president. i'm hopeful they hae tries it. it would be good to see this man's full-scale program for our country, what he'd do to insure tens of millions of out there for health care, how he'd finance social security and medicare for the long haul, what wars he'd fight, how he'd bring peace and security to our country, how he would work the bipartisan compromises we need to meet the country's challenges. all he does now is stand back from government, take pot shots at pheasants and democrats alike, leaving the real work of running this country to the people dressed for work, instead of posing out there with the nuts and the pheasants. and a quick programming note.
hunted pheasant with steve king and made the battle of president obama's health care law will help the gop in 2014. >> all the washington strategists say in 2014. let's go back to the model of 06, 08, and 12. keep your head down and win races. that's not how you win races. that's based on the idea that if your opponent is here, you want to be to the right so that you can capture every marginal voter up to where they are. the problem is if you do that, you destroy every single reason anyone has to show up. >> don't miss this jab from a guy who may give cruz competition. if he decides to run, this is what former presidential candidate and caucus winner said when asked weather cruz's strategy helped or hurt the gop. >> i would say that in the end he did more harm. i think it was not his objective. the objective was not doing a good job pointing it out. it's one thing to have a goal and the other thing to get to that goal. >> there is a record number of women in the 113th congress. many made their presence known in recent talks to end the government shut down. women had a harder time w
with the far right tea party congressman steve king. great for the image. before hunting, cruz received multiple standing ovations from the rabid right where he continued his myth-telling campaign and the crowd loved it. >> we are facing extraordinary tletss to our nation. we are seeing an administration that seems bent on violating every constitutional protection we have in the bill of rights. >> an extraordinary threat? more of their trademark fear mongering on display. and despite poll numbers sinking like a stone, the gop hasn't learned anything over the past year. take a look. >> it's the number one job killer in this country. >> there's this big cloud hanging over small business right now. it's obama care. >> and it's denying care to millions. >> under obama care they're cutting $716 billion from medicare. >> the way we're going to stop obama care, it's going to come from the american people. >> when we elect me president of the united states, we're going to get rid of obama care. >> memories. we're going to get rid of obama care. how'd that work out? just like it was going to be
. and we didn't know what they had in terms of leverage, steve, over these insurance companies but it's beginning to become very clear. the truth lies with the insurance company sees. >> sure. absolutely. because they're the ones who have got to provide. and it's -- there are all sorts of stories about how remember if you like your doctor, if you like your plan, keep your plan, not true. if you like your hospital, that's not going to be true, as well. because so few are going to be involved. in the meantime, the democrats and the president clearly own this now. the affordable care act is theirs, and that, brian, is why they're trying to blame everybody else. those insurers, they're cut-rate, bad apples. one of the guys -- >> that was bad they said that yesterday. when the president used that term to describe insurance companies in boston, it was essentially game on with a lot of these companies. >> absolutely. it's just like with wall street when he referred to them as fat cats. >> this is just too good. there are such things as standards in the law. so in other words, companies just
in 2005, steve bennan writing when he was a small child back in 2005, basically saw all of this coming, describing that deal, he wrote about janice rogers brown and priscilla owen as awful nominees who had been cleared for the bench saying, quote, they will soon take their lifetime positions on the federal appeals bench which is a genuine travesty. joining us now, senior editor and legal correspondent at slate. thanks for being with us. >> thanks for having me. >> so you wrote -- you co-wrote a piece this evening at "slate" that headlines these rulings today as body blows to reproductive rights. why do you think these rulings are so serious? and do you think it's the end of the road or we should expect important appeals? >> i think both of these will be appealed clearly. what we're seeing in the fifth circuit, the ruling about texas is in conflict with a whole bunch of other judges who looked at this, you know, question about whether physicians had to have admitting privileges within a couple of miles. everyone else pretty much strikes it down. so now you have the fifth circuit saying
people like steve stockman in texas who said quote, one of the things i always questioned was the documentation of the president. whether that was fraudulent. the birther king is donald trump, but there are others. >> if the state of hawaii says this is official, he was born in hawaii on this date, here it is, why do you deny that? >> a lot of people do not think it was an authentic certificate. >> you don't still question he was born in the united states, do you? >> i had no idea. >> even at this point? >> i don't know. was there a birth certificate? some people say that was not his birth certificate. i'm saying i don't know. nobody knows. and you don't know either. you're a smart guy. you don't know. >> the president has not produced a birth certificate. he's produced a birth announcement. >> let's revisit some of these things because americans have questions about not only the irs scandal but also about the president's validity. >> was he elected legitimately to the united states? >> i was not in congress to determine that. that was determined before i got here. >> woul
members of congress read this website. congressman steve stockman is even handing out the copies of the website's obama impeachment book to every member of congress, bill. >> there's so much going on here. first of all, i've got to say there's a common thread here with this guy down in mississippi and with this nazi talk. this is the tea party mantra. remember the tea party is essentially a racist organization. let's just be honest about that. we saw it from the very beginning with the white face they used to wear at the rallies, with the posters they used to hang around, with the confederate flags that i saw at tea party rallies here on the washington mall, and the source of that tea party movement is that they've never been able to accept barack obama as a legitimate president. the birthers are part of it. they've never been able to accept a black man in the white house. then we see all these different manifestations of it. that's what's going on here. with all these different stories we're telling. it's part of the the same m.o. >> when you look at the fact that conservative r
of kentucky today, steve beshear. governor beshear has been a big part of obama care's success in the state. as soon as the law was passed, he saw the vision. they got to work on the infrastructure for the exchange. they're up and running and it's working. he's cut through all the negative misinformation, and all of the lies that have been out there about obama care, and clearly explained to us today why this law is good, it's working, and it's great for the country as a whole. >> congratulations. >> thank you very much. thanks for coming to kentucky. >> it's good to be here. why is it so smooth in kentucky? >> well, our folks are the real heroes here, ed. the people that work in this building, that work all over the state, educating kentuckyions about what the affordable care act is all about. our folks got in early and worked with the vendors on the website, and as you know, we had very few problems with it. and it's cranking out people that are joining up every day at the rate of about a thousand a day. we're now over 32,000 people who have signed up for affordable health care. >> you go
for attention. one of them, senator ted cruz, went hunting with congressman steve king in the critical state of iowa. >> nothing, nothing, nothing matters more than an energized and active and vocal grassroots america. that's how you win elections. >> louisiana governor bobby jindal leaving the door open on his plans. new jersey's chris christie is also mentioned as a possible presidential contender. he will tour communities tomorrow hard hit by superstorm sandy last year. the tragedy cemented christie's reputation as a bipartisan leader. >>> tonight at 6:00 the prosecution rests. we'll have the latest from florida as the defense starts presenting its case in the sean taylor murder trial. >> plus he broke the color line at university of maryland and paved the way for african americans on the football field in the south. we'll celebrate the legacy of darrell hill in a couple minutes. >> you're watching wusa9 news at 5:00 coming to you live from broadcast house in northwest d.c. thanks for being here with and i sponsored this ad. candidate for attorney general, if you think ken cuccinelli woul
